If you hustle out to Globe Life Park in Arlington this afternoon, you can see former Highland Park High School standout Chris Young return to town as a member of the Seattle Mariners. He is scheduled to start against the Rangers in the finale of a two-game series beginning at 1 p.m.

Young missed much of the past two seasons with injury woes, but has been a bright spot this season for the Mariners, who signed him to bolster their depleted pitching staff shortly before the season began. The 6-foot-10 right-hander is 3-1 with a 3.22 earned-run average in seven starts.

The 34-year-old Young also has pitched in the majors for the Rangers, Padres, and Mets. He was in the Washington Nationals organization last season during his comeback from a shoulder injury. Young pitched for the Scots from 1996 to 1998, followed by two seasons at Princeton University.
